... Timbaland. Well, maybe those lyrics aren't really all that brilliant, and actually were written by OneRepublic's front man, but how many people actually know that the front man's name is Ryan Tedder? But alas, the author of those poignant words is unimportant, as it is only the meaning and intent of them that matter.

... got absolutely soaked! Was fun but I was worried about my camera and phone! Also started losing light but we managed to make it back. Ended up not bothering to take off trainers as last water part we had to cross as soaked through already. Got back and pooped!

I know know what it feels like for those people who camp out for Black Friday or concert tickets overnight, I'm not proud of it, but you got to do what you got to do. Did a nice little ...
